About this event
The HempClub project, funded by the COSME Programme of the European Union, brings together 7 clusters and associations operating in the bioeconomy, advanced manufacturing and hemp production sectors to create interconnected and interregional supply chains between primary producers and green chemistry manufacturers in the hemp sector.
INDAGROPOL, partner of this project, organizes its #2 working group on “Empowering and mobilizing innovation actors on hemp”. The WG will bring together actors from various sectors (clusters, associations, companies, research environment, academia, etc.), focusing the discussion on the topics of Romanian clusters integration in global value chains, presenting the Romanian Cluster for industrial hemp in a global context, then bringing the discussion towards the Romanian legislation for the medicinal use of hemp, on hemp varieties and the technologies for hemp cultivation and harvesting.
The aim is for participants to be able to take part in the discussions, ask questions and network, creating bridges for future collaboration.
